Please note: Starting August 1, 2014, Playa Linda Beach Resort will start the pool renovation. The pool deck will be partially closed while the main pool remains open for our guests. There will be some construction noise as theyll be building an adult activities pool during the months of September to December 2014. Playa Linda has made arrangements with our neighboring hotels in case our guests want to be away from the noise. Construction will end December 14, 2014.

As a Timeshare Resort, guests might be required to change their assigned accommodations during their stay if they do not arrive on a Sunday. Guests will be advised upon check-in if this will occur and hotel will assist in the move.

Room not well maintained

Pool is nice. Jacuzzi's are scalding. Couldn't get cool or cold water in the shower or sink faucet. Bathroom faucet was not attached well to the countertop. Certain days of the week, rooms are not made up

Wonderful stay great location. Beware that on Sundays they ask you to change rooms based on incoming timeshare owners. This was only inconvenience.

Great hotel. Great shallow beach. No waves.

. Only inconvenience was that we stayed Friday to Friday and were told on arrival that someone should have told us we would have to change rooms in two days because they book from Sunday to Sunday.

Greatest trip ever

Only drawback was that, because Playa Linda is a resort made up of primarily time share owners, who own their unit from Sunday through Saturday, we had to switch rooms on Sunday. But, this was clearly a common occurance, and the staff made it a very simple move...they move everything for you. And a nice surprise actually was a bigger, nicer room...a full suite actually, with a better view for our last night. Overall, I loved it, and would definitley go back. May even purchase a time share.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Even the smallest units here have a small kitchenette. Take a $10 cab ride to the nearby grocery store, and buy food, drinks and booze at a cheaper price. Spend your eating out budget on a few nice dinners, at El Gaucho and Madam Jannettes.

Loud

I was highly disappointed with Playa Linda. The floors were tile so very noisy with chairs being dragged across floors, they were also very dirty. I believe they just mop the floors with the same dirty water so they never get clean. Doors slam shut on their own, even if you try closing quietly, it is impossible. The place was so noisy, I hardly got any sleep at all. Patrons yelling in halls at 7am, housekeeping started yelling in halls at 8am. Beach hut process was terrible. People could reserve huts at 6am and not show up all day, and they would never remove the stuff so that someone else could use it. Of course, all the staff were very nice, as are all the people that work in Aruba. I go to Aruba twice a year, and would never stay there again. We arrived on Thanksgiving day, and had to change rooms on Sunday, neither travel agency nor Playa Linda told me of this change until I asked a question on Saturday about my room charge card that expired 3 days before I was to depart.
